Guardian Peru acts to protect Inca Trail: "Following inspections, the Unidad de Gestion de Machu Picchu (UGM), the organisation responsible for managing visitors to the site, has published a list of Cusco-based tour operators permitted to sell Inca Trail packages. Of the 93 tour operators which sold such packages, only 40 have been given permission to continue operating and a further 15 have been given two weeks to improve their standards. To qualify for a permit, tour operators must use only assigned camp sites with proper toilet facilities, carry all rubbish with them, use only certain types of fuel, provide two guides for groups of more than seven tourists, and limit the amount porters carry to 20kg." The Lima government rachets up control of the Machu Picchu trail.
